    Hi,

     

    I read thru the guidelines. Somewhere it is stated that the tests are scheduled in the plan already, but I can only find the swim tests in the triathlon maintenance plan. I cannot find bike or run tests in this plan or in the 70.3 plan level 1. Any advice which workout I should skip and do a test instead?

     

    Thanks,

    Andreas

    If you are doing a maintenance plan, then the goal would be to maintain your fitness.  There really wouldn’t be a need to test and reset zones.  Testing zones would occur while you are using a plan that has a specific race goal attached to it.

    Hi Anne, thanks for your reply.

    My 70.3 plan is starting in about a month. That is why I was asking. I did not find any test sessions in it and just wanted to know when to plan them.

    Totally misunderstood your question!!

    Do the testing a few days or so before you begin the new plan.  Be sure to do the run and the bike tests on separate days for the most accurate results.
